people to lose everything. now congress is taking some action. abc's jim avila reports. >> it was just grand, this was our dream. >> reporter: the family home, dream and nest egg for wisconsin's linda and jim mcmahon until it had to be sold out from under linda to pay back a reverse mortgage as soon as her husband died. >> i get a letter sorry to hear about your husband passing away. buy the house or move out. >> reporter: reverse mortgages give homeowners an immediate cash payment in exchange for future equity allowing them to stay in the house until death. but only people 62 and older qualify. linda was too young to be on the mortgage so when her older husband died, she lost everything. it is only one danger inherent in the reverse mortgage. >> hi, i'm fred thompson. >> hi, i'm henry winkler. >> reporter: critics say, tv commercials prey on seniors. the government is warning reverse mortgages are not free money. >> turn equity into tax free cash. >> give you tax free cash. >> they're not being told. about the downside. >> reporter: right now in america, 57 seniors in reverse mortgage

in the country's future. so you see these parallel actions. recognizing the opposition formally but at the same time labeling certain parts of it as, you know, terrorists. so that's an important distinction there. and all eyes are glued to whether chemical weapons will be used or not. >> as you can allude to, they're opening the door for that possibility down the road. but responsibly. >> and we should point out that the full interview with president obama and the first lady will air on friday on "20/20" and "nightline." a cool tradition that barbara gets to sit down in the white house during the holidays and talk to both. certainly no shortage of topics as 2012 winds down. >> but yet the platform is not like she gets extended time for it.

is so divided on this issue. the polls suggest people want congress to take some action, if nothing more to close loopholes, perhaps ban some of the high capacity magazines. so you think something is going to happen, but you have to wonder if it has the votes in the house to get it passed. even that assault weapons ban from '94 to 2004, even when that passed in the '90s, it passed by two or three votes. so republicans now control the house. i don't know how anything gets through or if it is, it's a baby step. >> and as you heard from the nra, they don't seem to be budging on the issue, either. >> no. leavgun control alone. >>> now a major medical headline just out this morning, and it has to do with bullied, overweight children. a study snows a significant number of them, 42% of them, are bullied by adults, including gym teachers and coaches. 27% say the verbal abuse has come from teachers. the result of this comes from a survey that was taken by children who were in weight loss programs. >>> and a health alert this morning by unapproved botox making its way into american clinics. the fd
